  1. This is kind of unusual…I am sick and not able to go to church this am which is really hard. So thank you for the reminder this am that He is not here…He is risen. One day our frail and sick bodies will be no more. I take heart that I know the end of the story. Blessings and a Joyous Easter to my (in)courage friends! Love you, Bev

  2. My tradition for my girls, 27 years ago, was pretty flowered dresses, white lacy socks, and new white shoes.. I always read the Easter Story to them when we got up . They are now 30 and 31.
    Prayers for all that need them and all that don’t know your precious love oh Lord.

  3. Happy Resurrection day!!!
    I always try to find a sunrise service. Usually our little church has one at 7AM and then we all go and share breakfast!! Then I will go to the regular service to worship with the congregation. This year I will be eating lunch with my pastor, his wife and some friends! We will have a blessed time enjoying the company!!
    On the way to church this AM I looked at the mountains. I could visualize three crosses and Jesus saying “My God my God why have you forsaken me?”. I cried as I realized what He did for me-died a cruel death to give me life to the full! How can a heart not be thankful and rejoice at that!!?
